Fine with me. :)
That sounds good to me. My library account says in about another 2 weeks I'll get the book, so starting the beginning of October should work out well for me! :)
Great! :)
I have Dead Voices and can start! I will try very hard to keep up, but I'm finding it challenging to keep up with my reading lately (my new job has taken a lot of my time). So, if I can't keep up, feel free to keep discussing the book between the two of you, and I'll try to jump in when I can. Thank you!

Great! @Gravy, what about you?

Yay!

While I'm here, anybody interested in a read-a-long of The One Hundred and One Dalmatians?


I'm currently trying to find an acceptable copy through Amazon, so it may be a little while.

Anyone interested in a read-a-long of The Twisted Ones? It would be when I got done with my current read (have to get it done so the next person can read it).


For reference, here's the description:
When Mouse’s dad asks her to clean out her dead grandmother's house, she says yes. After all, how bad could it be?

Answer: pretty bad. Grandma was a hoarder, and her house is stuffed with useless rubbish. That would be horrific enough, but there’s more—Mouse stumbles across her step-grandfather’s journal, which at first seems to be filled with nonsensical rants…until Mouse encounters some of the terrifying things he described for herself.

Alone in the woods with her dog, Mouse finds herself face to face with a series of impossible terrors—because sometimes the things that go bump in the night are real, and they’re looking for you. And if she doesn’t face them head on, she might not survive to tell the tale.

Hi gali. Just curious - do you ever read nonfictions? Do you have anything on the horizon after you finish "The Twisted Ones"?
